In an instant

Winds shift
Seasons change
News delivered thwarts dreams

In an instant things change. Or can change. There’s always a possibility. And you just never know.

Why does it always seem that the odds are stacked more unfavorably in someone’s direction than another’s? Why do the people who take the most risk usually end up with the most amount of pain? The answer should be obvious, right? Yeah, I get it. But it still blows. And I recognize that choices matter. Doesn’t soften the blow. It doesn’t make you feel the judgement any less.

Jokes, snide remarks, labels, stereotypes and vulnerabilities exposed can send someone working so hard to be open running right back into the shelter of their own walls.

Shame, fear, and guilt.
